Pros

This company tries to compete with other tech companies in the bay area. They will make you promises and will never deliver.

Cons

This company does not support anyone over the age of 35, they allow managers to make their own rules and not adhere to company policies. I would never recommend anyone to work for this company, unless you want to lose your soul. They are incredibly top-heavy with senior directors with no direct reports, it is a joke. Their health insurance is disgusting and incomplete. They claim to have flex PTO but managers can decide to not adhere to it. The company is too large to manage its managers and the managers know that. And they can do whatever they want.

Advice to Management

Transparency is helpful. Biased personal opinions not so much

Their health insurance is disgusting and incomplete.

Pros

*Pays better than many other companies. *Udemy courses online are free ( not all but most) which is the only learning opportunity within the company

Cons

* No parking * horrible food * unassigned seating, have to hunt for a desk every morning, chargers, headphones ,chairs and other accessories get stolen if left unattended at desk, specially if left overnight. *Extremely political, extremely tight coupling between teams which is totally unnecessary, forcing collaborative work. With collaborative work, it’s not always clear who has done what, which leaves the door open for a colleague or your manager to take undue credit for your work. * People expect to be spoon-fed in the name of collaborating and get promoted regardless. * Allegiance is held in higher regard than actual performance. *Open communication is held against you. *Nepotism is prevalent. *No on-boarding *No goal setting * HR seems to be non-existent, its well known that HR is meant to safe guard the company's interests in every company, but still, in other places they do have some tools to keep managers in check from abusing their power so blatantly. We are expected to give our manager's 360 feedback in a simple email that goes to our director. There is no forum to keep the feedback confidential. Anyone who raises concerns becomes the system's target. * positions are falsely advertised. When you actually join the job, job description may not match the actual work you are given. *1 on 1 / 1:1 are formalities, its mostly a one directional conversation, no matter what you have to say, its never acknowledged by your manager or HR. Even if you show solid evidence, they will game the system to set you up for failure for next time. * Health insurance is not that great. * Unlimited PTO creates a competition to take lesser time off in the team. You have to have leverage with your manager to negotiate for PTO, this often comes at the cost of long unpaid extra hours on weekends and after hours, or some other kind of favor. At the manager's whim, even a preplanned PTO can be expected to be cancelled at last moment, with serious repercussions if the employee resists. The system is very unfair.

Advice to Management

Stop encouraging the politicians in middle management by rewarding them. The politics is corrosive and damages collaboration and cooperation between teams. When employees are happy they are naturally more productive and can build great stuff. In a toxic environment like Walmart, productivity falls down to 30% or lower on average.

Health insurance is not that great.
